    My MacBook Air is doing something very strange with the battery. Well more than what's already been reported here. Seems that it loses some charge while sleeping. I believe that has already been written about. But the strange thing is that when it reaches exactly 95% and is connected to the charger. The charger is green but the battery display in the menu bar says "Not Charging" Hmmmm. This only seems to happen at exactly 95%. If I disconnect the charger or reboot it still says the same. On my MacBook pro this never happens. It always says "charged" until it goes below 95% and then says "charging" with however much time left. But never "not charging". So if I take it off power adapter and use it until 94% remaining then reconnect the power adapter then it goes into charging mode. Anyone else seen this?

    Weird...

    Does Coconut Battery offer any insight? Not sure if the level of detail it gets to would be at all useful in this case....

    I have istat installed. It says battery health is either 99 or 100%. Battery seems ok as far as holding a charge.. Just that weird behavior.

    I called apple and they ran me through power management reset. Before we started he told me to remove the battery. I told him on a MacBook Air you can't remove the battery. hmmmmm:) We'll see if this helps
